About Me

{Michigander turned Okie – Food, Beer & Wine Enthusiast – Living & Cooking in Love & Light}


I cook because it makes me happy and healthy. It brings joy, light and love to my house and my life!

I am a life-long vegetarian who married an Oklahoma man who was raised on meat and potatoes. Once we moved in together, my cooking took a turn. I started making more creative meals, with more protein and nutrients to fill up my Cowboy. I started to experiment more with new vegetables, local crops, spices and herbs. Before him, I made what I liked. Now, I am more adventurous and have found my style in the kitchen. I am passionate about spices and herbs, fresh ingredients and simple tastes.

I started this recipe blog in 2014 as much for me, at it was for anyone else. I wanted to find a place to archive recipes, and be able to share vegetarian dishes with friends and family. Thank you all so much for the love and support as I go into my third year. I hope you find a few recipes to try.

Cheers to a little love & light from my kitchen to yours!

  1. Mrs. Kneisel and I are happy to find your blog. As Newbees to the vegetarian scene (we started out with Vegan but I miss my cheese), we are trying your recipe ideas as a learning experience. Thank you so much for sharing.
